Sovereign Lord, You come with great power and with a mighty arm. Your reward is with You, and your recompense accompanies You. You tend your flock like a Shepherd: You gather the lambs in your arms and carry them close to your heart and gently lead those that have young. We lift up our eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of your great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. You are the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. You do not grow tired or weary; your understanding no one can fathom. You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but all who hope in You will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Lord, renew our strength. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Prayer based on Isaiah 40 New International Version
